Consent Orders for Property, Parenting, and Maintenance
Need expert advice to negotiate and formalise an agreement?
A Consent order is an order made by a Court without either of the parties attending. A Consent order can be used to formalise a property settlement, spousal maintenance agreement, parenting arrangements, or all three.
It is an administrative process but has the same effect of an order made by a Judge after a trial. The Court must approve the order and be satisfied, on the paperwork provided, that the order is reasonable and practicable.
While independent legal advice is not strictly necessary for Consent orders, both parties must be aware of their right to obtain independent legal advice and must have considered the relevant parts of the Family Law Act.
How Can We Help You?
Family Law Group Solicitors can assist you with formalising the agreement reached between you and your former spouse as a consent order.
We’ll prepare the application for consent orders and the orders which the Court is being asked to make. Also, we will prepare any other documents and ensure all the required steps get completed so that the Court has the information available when it considers the application.
